Posts admin permissions

In this article, we’ll describe the process for granting admin permissions within Posts.

Posts permissions are somewhat unique because Posts users do not have to be admin users. Admin users who have the “Posts” checkbox enabled in Admin Users automatically have full access to the entire Posts module. For constituent users, you can set permissions for boards and collections. 

Board permissions

To access board permissions, go to the three-dot menu for that board, select Settings, and go to the “Permissions” tab. Search for a specific user or click “Select Group” and choose a group. Then select the level of access from the dropdown menu. 

  • Admin: Constituents with this access level have full rights to the board, including the ability to give permissions to other users.
  • View, Edit, Publish & Delete (All Posts): Constituents with this access level have full rights to all posts on the board, but they cannot access the board settings.
  • View, Edit & Delete (All Posts): Constituents with this access level are able to view all posts on the board, create new posts, edit and delete their own and others’ posts, but do not have rights to publish posts. 
  • View, Edit, Publish & Delete (Own Posts Only): Constituents with this access level can only see their own posts on the board, but they have full rights to create, edit, publish, and delete their posts.
  • View, Edit & Delete (Own Posts Only): Constituents with this access level can only see, edit, and delete their own posts, and they do not have rights to publish posts.
  • View: Constituents with this access level can view (but not edit) their own posts on a board and select posts from this board for collections.

Collection permissions

To access collection permissions, go to the three-dot menu for that collection, select Settings, and go to the “Permissions” tab. Search for a specific user or click “Select Group” and choose a group. 

Users with permissions for collections can add posts from any board they have at least “View” permission for.
